Howell, Rachel A.; Allen, Simon – Environmental Education Research, 2019
We present a survey of 85 people involved in climate change education and mitigation, mainly in the UK, exploring the significant life experiences (SLEs) and formative influences that have contributed to their concern about climate change and their interest in climate change education and mitigation. In contrast with the findings of a large number…

Hestness, Emily; McGinnis, J. Randy; Breslyn, Wayne – Environmental Education Research, 2019
This case study applied sociocultural theory to examine the climate change ideas communicated by one group of middle school students (N = 39) in a suburban community on the U.S. East Coast. We investigated the ways in which students' participation in the sociocultural activities of their varied communities appeared to inform their understandings…

Shealy, Tripp; Klotz, Leidy; Godwin, Allison; Hazari, Zahra; Potvin, Geoff; Barclay, Nicole; Cribbs, Jennifer – Environmental Education Research, 2019
Climate change has not been well understood by high school students in the US and the topic is often connected to misconceptions, which is especially damaging since accurate understandings of the concepts are strongly predictive of intent to do something about it. We use data from a national (US) survey of first year college students to identify…

Stevenson, Kathryn T.; Peterson, M. Nils; Bondell, Howard D. – Environmental Education Research, 2019
Understanding adolescent climate change concern (CCC) may be a key strategy for building a citizenry that supports climate change action, as adolescents are likely less influenced by ideological polarization than adults. Prior research shows that climate education may build concern among adolescents, but other factors such as peer pressure may…

Krasny, Marianne E.; DuBois, Bryce – Environmental Education Research, 2019
Given the magnitude and immediacy of climate change, how should environmental education (EE) address not only reducing our climate footprint but also climate adaptation? Whereas some approaches to adaptation education are consistent with EE foundational principles, others, while crucial for individual survival, address more immediate risks in ways…

Bentley, Andrew P. K.; Petcovic, Heather L.; Cassidy, David P. – Environmental Education Research, 2019
Individuals are exposed to misleading or outright false anthropogenic climate change (ACC) information. The goals of this study are to identify ACC dissenter messages, and to develop an instrument that quantifies the extent to which individuals agree with these messages. The instrument was developed using a sequential mixed methods design. A…

Waldron, F.; Ruane, B.; Oberman, R.; Morris, S. – Environmental Education Research, 2019
Given the radical reduction in carbon emissions required from developed countries, a robust and justice-orientated educational response is necessary to support the collective actions needed to mitigate climate change. This exploratory study uses thematic analysis of interview and focus group data to investigate the understandings of educators,…

Monroe, Martha C.; Plate, Richard R.; Oxarart, Annie; Bowers, Alison; Chaves, Willandia A. – Environmental Education Research, 2019
Increased interest in climate change education and the growing recognition of the challenges inherent to addressing this issue create an opportunity to conduct a systematic review to understand what research can contribute to our ideas about effective climate change education. An academic database, EBSCO"host," was used to identify 959…

Li, Christine Jie; Monroe, Martha C. – Environmental Education Research, 2019
Hope is an important component that helps engage people in solving problems. Environmental educational resources addressing climate change effectively should ideally nurture hope as well as increase understanding about the issue. However, hopefulness about resolving climate change challenges is a relatively new construct in the literature and…

Busch, K. C.; Henderson, Joseph A.; Stevenson, Kathryn T. – Environmental Education Research, 2019
In this commentary, we reflect on the articles in this special collection from our lens as scholars who have chosen to conduct research with a focus on climate change education. We start with statements of positionality, as certainly our own experiences and philosophical stances shape our work and reflections included here. Afterwards, we present…

Gleason, Tristan – Environmental Education Research, 2019
This commentary first seeks to situate the broad themes of Bruno Latour's work by discussing how particular texts and ideas have influenced the author's thinking about science, the environment, education, and research methods that enable generative approaches towards these phenomena. Latour's work deftly crosses borders that have long siloed…

Kunkle, Kristen A.; Monroe, Martha C. – Environmental Education Research, 2019
Integrating climate change into environmental education programs and formal science classrooms can be difficult, as the issue remains controversial and highly politicized among the American public. This study proposes that the same cultural values that shape worldview differences and divide public opinion on anthropogenic climate change will…
